They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Ana direct= positive, rnp= 1.9, crp=neg, sedr=neg, rf=neg, sm anti=neg, all other labs neg. Slight fatigue and mild joint aches. What does this mean?
Low positive ana, dual pattern speckled, centromere. Positive aca and positive histone ab igg. After c/o skin rash and moderate right hip pain.
Need to be evaluated: A low titer (concentration) ANA test is not particularly helpful to make a diagnosis. Even with a particular pattern (speckled) and anti-centromere antibodies and anti-histone antibodies. Your rash and hip pain are more important as well as inflammatory markers like an ESR and a CBC if they are normal or not. See your doctor and ask for a referral to a rheumatologist if you are concerned. ...Read more

Donated blood said hlab27 antigen positive PCP had blood drawn hlab27 negative. joint pain everywhere. weight gain headaches weakness tingling hands?
Cannot be: HLA- B27 is always positive or negative. It does not change. One of the tests was wrong. Also, HLA-B27 is useless as a screening test. The symptoms need to be worked up (eg., the joint pain) and then, only the proper tests should be done depending on the symptoms. Diseases such Lyme disease or lupus cannot be checked for with labs. A history & physical are the first steps. ...Read more
